Germany warns Iranian regime of more sanction if nuclear deal is not reached

The Iranian regime could face more sanctions if it failed to reach a long-term deal with the six world powers on its nuclear program, German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier said Monday.

“We are able to make an offer which is difficult for Iran to reject, if they want a solution,” Steinmeier said in a speech at the ASEAN secretariat in the Indonesian capital, Jakarta.

“If we are failing or not able to make a final deal, I‘m afraid then the American mid-term elections will take place, and without an agreement the American institutions will take new decisions about sanctions against Iran,” he said.

The negotiations between six world powers and the Iranian regime would continue on November 11 in Muscat, the capital of Oman, according senior Iranian negotiator.

The talks would be held after the trilateral meeting on November 9-10 between the Iranian regime’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, US Secretary of State John Kerry and Former EU Foreign Policy Chief Catherine Ashton in Muscat, state-run IRNA news agency quoted Abbas Araqchi as saying on Sunday.

The Iranian regime’s uranium enrichment and the international sanctions imposed on the regime will be the topic of discussions in the trilateral meeting, Araqchi added.

Meanwhile, the head of the United Nations nuclear inspection organization declared Friday that the Iranian regime had stopped answering the agency’s questions about suspected past efforts to design the components of a bomb.
